Today, the Democratic National Committee is unveiling a new billboard in Green Bay ahead of Trump’s visit to Wisconsin this week highlighting how his failed coronavirus response has hurt Wisconsinites.
The billboard, located in Green Bay, will reach voters in the geographical area around Trump’s event starting this week. Across Wisconsin, coronavirus cases are spiking and at least 93 people have died in Brown County alone. The state reports it is on track to run out of ICU beds in the next two to six weeks.
“Voters across Green Bay won’t be able to miss this message: Trump was too incompetent and inneffective to respond to the coronavirus, and his failure has cost too many Wisconsinites their lives and livelihoods,” said DNC spokesperson Maddie McComb. “When Trump comes to the Badger state, he’ll be greeted by the consequences of his record: spiking COVID-19 infection rates, workers who are struggling to find a good paying job, and Wisconsinites concerned he’ll rip away their health care coverage in the middle of a pandemic. The last thing Wisconsin needs is Trump coming to town to try and distract from his broken promises, and Wisconsinites will hold him accountable for his failures this November.”
Ahead of Trump’s event, Wisconsin Democrats are also hosting a press call with Wisconsinites impacted by Trump’s failure to respond to COVID-19.
